no action on the nation's gridirons this fall. and quake questions-- this town prepared in the u.s. for an earthquake as strong as the one that hit japan. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with russ mitchell. >> mitchell: and good evening. it is already sunday morning in japan, and another major aftershock has just hit the country which is still digging out after friday's disastrous 8.9-magnitude earthquake. here's the latest-- an explosion at a nuclear power plant forced 170,000 people to evacuate while an emergency was declared tonight at a second reactor in the same complex. roads and buildings throughout the area have been devastated, and hundreds of thousands are stranded without food or water. we have correspondents all along the earthquake zone tonight and we begin with ben tracy in tokyo. >> reporter: with more cameras on the ground, we are now getting our closest look yet at the extent of the damage. it is simply overwhelming. in hard-hit sendai, a city of one million people, police say they found as many as 300 bodies washed up on the beach as the

. eric? >> eric: that is absolutely astounding. the u.s., rushing to help the people of japan, and citizens trapped in the quake ravaged country now, there are 1300 americans in the hardest-hit parts of the country. officers are working to assist the people in those areas and the aircraft carrier uss ronald reagan is positioned off the japanese coast and helicopters from the carrier are delivering food and supplies to devastated stouns, and flying missions to and from japanese ships. >> jamie: americans in japan when the disaster struck are making their way -- trying to get back to u.s. soil. and, they are describing exactly what they experienced. as the earth began to shift beneath their feet. >> it hit, and we live in a high rise, 14th floor, and, just kept going and going and it was pretty incredible. very strong. >> things were swaying, pictures swaying so hard they fell off the wall. and fragile things were falling off and, doors opened, lamps you know -- everything went -- and, cranes at the building across the street from us and the cranes looked like they were flags. >

in japan, the u.s. and beyond. you're in the cnn news room. i'm fredricka witfield. we'll get to all of those angles in japan and beyond. but first, a look at some other top stories. in the middle east, yemeni security forces fired guns and tear gas at protesters outside sanaa university today. at least 110 people were hurt. protesters are angry over high unemployment and what they see as government corruption and a lack of political freedom. >>> two men with ties to egypt's former leader have been arrested for orchestrating this assault on protesters in cairo's tahrir square. armed attackers charged through the crowd on horses and camels last month. nine days later, hosni mubarak was overthrown. >>> and in the u.s., new york police and the ntsb are investigating a bus crash that killed 14 people. there are conflicting reports about what caused the bus to flip and swerve into a pole yesterday. the driver says he was cut off by a semi truck. but witnesses say the bus was speeding. >> the bus turned on its side and as a result, the pole of the stanchion in essence cut the bus in half.
to help out. the u.s.s. ronald reagan arrived off the coast on sunday and made dozens of trips delivering aid. meanwhile, more video is emerging of the sheer scale of what's hit japan. take a look at this. in a moment, we'll go live to japan. but, first, here is my take. there have been many ways to try to make sense of the tsunami in japan. many analogies from history. the simplest for me is if you take the earthquake that hit new zealand a few weeks ago and multiplied it by 1,000, would you get the one that hit japan. or if you remember the one that devastated haiti last year? this one is several hundred times more powerful. that's why despite all of the precautions and preparedness, the devastation has been so great. in fact, most experts agree that in terms of safety plans and procedures, japan has done almost everything right. it's too soon to draw any important lessons here. too soon to do anything but mourn. but this tragedy does remind us, no matter how much advance work a country does. no matter how well the buildings are built, nothing can prepare you for this. but the work has
is on the way, 100,000 japanese soldiers now committed to try to help the people in this region and the u.s. is committed, too. 20 choppers, it was announced today, worked relief flights off of the uss ronald reagan aircraft carrier just off the coast from where we are now and the people here are pitching h as well, just in this village where we are, we saw today people pick up boats, cars, trucks thrown onto the main street by the tsunami on friday. chris. >> chris: thanks for that. joining us is an expert on nuclear issues, japanese officials are now talking about fighting two partial melt downs in nuclear reactors. briefly what is going on and potentially how dangerous. >> this is an unprecedented crisis, it is extremely serious, one of the reactors had half their core exposed already and this is the one they are flooding with sea water in a desperate effort to prevent it from a complete melt down and they've lost control of a second reactor next to it, a partial melt down and there are actually -- there's a third reactor at a related site 20 kilometer away they've lost control over and
of recordkeeping that stretches back 108 years. this is another view from the u.s. drought monitor of 2002 showing drought conditions. we had big fires break out in 2002. it was the best known because it was 460 some odd acres, the biggest fire in arizona's history. it was two separate fires set by humans and they eventually merged. this is a color enhanced image from space, but just how big the fires how when you look at the landscape. this is one of the 400 houses destroyed. this is the entire map of arizona, and you can see the fire took out a big portion of the high country forests. i just want to talk just a minute about another big effect on our water supply. this is glen canyon dam and any aquatic species in the southwest was in difficult circumstances because of dams like this and all we do to modify the water systems here in the southwest. this is the hump back chub, one of many species in payroll. these two maps show you two different scenarios of what global warm can do to our water supply in terms of precipitation. there's going to be a dramatic decrease in precipitation, and we're tal

>>> held throw our viewers in the u.s. and all over the world. i'm pauline chiou at cnn hong kong. >> i'm nationalie alan in cnn. it is sun afternoon in sendai, japan, where 48 hours ago the biggest earthquake ever recorded in japan struck just offshore. the japanese meet logical society has upgraded that quake to a magnitude of 9.0, while the u.s. geological survey has maintained a rating of 8.9. the city's 1 million people, and countless towns and vimmages to the north were devastated by the subsequent tsunami that crashed over the coastline and tore through everything in its path. while that danger has passed, another has emerged. at this hour, we are tracking a new and extremely serious concern. >> japanese nuclear official says there is a possibility just a possibility, that there could be a meltdown at one of the reactors at the fukushima daiichi nuclear plant. a second reactor is also in trouble, but japan's ambassador to the u.s. has told cnn there is no evidence that a meltdown is under way. >> estimated 80,000 people live within ten kilometers of the plant, six miles, al

to the nuclear power plants in japan right now. i think it calls on us here in the u.s. naturally, not to stop building nuclear power plants, but to put the brakes on right now until we understand the ramifications of what's happened in japan. final word of reassurance to the american people. since three mile island, we upgraded safety standards for our nuclear power plants. right now, no plant can be built unless it can withstand the known highest earthquake in that geographic area, plus some margin of safety. >> schieffer: so, so.... >> so this is part of what we do we do. >> schieffer: what you're saying is we should have a moratorium now on building nuclear plants, that we should just kind of stop and kind of reassess? >> yeah. i've been a big supporter of nuclear power, because it's domestic, it's ours and it's clean. but we've had a good safety with nuclear power plants here in the united states. but i think we've got to... i don't want to stop the building of nuclear power plants but i think we've got to kind of quietly and quickly put the brakes on until we can absorb what has happened
's not just the japanese people concerned about what the japanese government is telling them. u.s. officials are concerned as well. this began right after the earthquake and tsunami. u.s. officials said the japanese officials were very concerned about what is going on at the nuclear power plant, but they weren't telling people they were worried. they were in effect saving face. obviously it's only gotten worse since then. u.s. officials say they have reached out to the japanese government many times but a lot of the calls haven't been returned. they have offered nuclear teams to go in and help. they have given all kinds of assistance, any kind of assistance the japanese government wants. what u.s. officials are concerned about is that the japanese government is not planning far in advance. they're taking care of immediate problems, but they're not looking ahead at what might happen next. david? >> our thanks to martha raddatz for weighing in. at the top of the broadcast, we told you about the iodine tablets being prepared here to be handed out to the children if needed, which got us to think
